Love Dare, Day One: Love is Patient

OK.  Here goes.  Let the Love Dare begin.  Ahem.

Day 1:  Love is patient

Today, resolve to demonstrate patience (I could really use this right now) and to say nothing negative to your spouse at all.  If the temptation arises, choose not to say anything.  It's better to hold your tongue than to say something you'll regret.

God help us all.

Love this Anne! My hubby did this dare with me (on me) in a winter of our marriage and it most certainly softened my heart and brought me to a place of being open to hearing God's will for our lives. Today we are very happily married. But I think its time I follow the program. When Pat did it he said afterward, "It truly taught me what it meant to really LOVE another person." I think it's my turn. So, today I am joining you in The Dare. I have the book and I'll do the journaling too. I think it's a wonderful idea! And a fabulous month to begin! :)

Yay! Stephanie! Thanks for the encouragement. I know it will be very beneficial in teaching ME how to love, too. So I'm excited. Nervous, but excited.
